Qualcomm Inc, the world's biggest mobile phone chip supplier, said on September 27 that it plans to launch two research and development centers in Taiwan to strengthen its partnerships with local suppliers catering to the growing demand for multimedia and artificial intelligence (AI).
The two centers-a multimedia R&D center and a mobile AI enablement center-would be long-term investments, Qualcomm said, adding that they are scheduled to start operations early next year.
The San Diego, California-based chipmaker on August 10 agreed to invest US$700 million in Taiwan over the next five years to settle an anti-trust lawsuit with the Fair Trade Commission.
In the multimedia area, Qualcomm has developed a wide range of cutting-edge technologies, such as 3D sensors and point cloud data compression facial, gesture and object recognition.
Qualcomm said it anticipates working with local companies to develop smartphone, automotive and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.
